Well to use a different methodology I don't think the Badminton Asia championships are very prestigious because it is only held in asia and people from outside asia aren't allowed to enter.

If AE is prestigious, so BWF should classified AE is the only SSP tourney. Very simple. But since BWF also included China, Korea, Indonesia & Denmark in the SSP level, so it is clear to say that, all 5 tourneys are prestigious, and not only AE

You are implying in the first part of you post that only one tournament can be prestigious, and the other half that all 5 SSP are equally prestigious. Which do you mean?

All England champion Wang Yihan only considered as "B class" player, meanwhile AE's big loser Wang Shixian (whom never won a single match in AE), considered as "Pre - A class" player. Proof that AE is just a small tourney for China. http://www.badzine.net/news/2011-chi...rosters/11018/

WHAT ! On what basis is Kim Jong Un/ Li Gen be graded as B class player .........
That grading was made last year this year, Wang Yihan, Wang Shixian and Wang Xin are A-class players..Li Xuerui will be promoted to A-class very soon after she bags the China Masters 2012

Badminton England have hosted the prestigious event twice in 1993 and 2003 in Birmingham. http://www.bwfbadminton.org/page.aspx?id=16288...the other evidence that even BWF doesn't consider all england as prestious event.

There is never a year, that the strongest players aren't at the All England. Korea, China etc all send all their players their (there are some that are sent and only make the reserve list) that's how strong it is. If they don't consider it prestigious why do that?
BWF, can't just have one tournament in the SS calendar at a different level to all the others, all by itself. Do you not think the other associations would complain? The AE is a prestigious tournament and IMO, more prestigious than the others in the SS calendar.
How can you consider the Badminton Asian Championships to be more prestigious than the AE? Have you seen the entry lists for both? There are some player that arent even ranked in the BAC (in fact there was a match this year where it was 21-0 21-0) that just puts your argument dead in the water...
